Toby's Diary

Josie proves my point

I didn't see this but my mum told me about it.

Yesterday my mum came home grumpy. She was muttering about problems with her car but they weren't very interesting so out I went to pursue the far more interesting pastime of hunting.

Josie likes to stay with mum when I go out and have some girl time. One of Josie's favourite games involves a little cat height table. Mum puts a pen or something like that on it and firmly tells Josie that's where she wants it to stay. Josie pretends to agree and then scoots past and knocks the thing off. Mum pretends to be annoyed and puts it back, Josie knocks it off and they can spend hours doing that.

Josie was at the table trying to get mum's attention but mum was grumpy so was ignoring her. Luckily Josie is possessed of a vivid imagination so pretended there were things to knock. Then she jumped on the table and looked all over and a-ha! What is that dangling off it? But as she chased the dangle it moved. She turned around and there it was again. She managed to catch it this time and gave it a good lick.

For yes, perched on the little table my sisfur was chasing her own tail as if she was a kitten. She kept going until my mum could be grumpy no longer and had to laugh and then Josie climbed on her lap and purred. Success!

My mum can be hard work to look after but we think she's worth it.

All mums can hard work but they're all worth it. Not good when our mums are grumpy either. Word from the wise to Josie just remember when chasing your tail it is attached to you and it can really hurt if you bite it too hard.

Ka-zar, I found that out firsthand, or rather, firstpaw - when I got my claw caught in my tail one day - MEOW-OUCH!
And that was certainly very thoughtful and selfless of Josie to take that chance to cheer up your Mama. Hugs!

I'll be careful as I have sticky claws. Thanks for the warning - sounds ouchy! I do know it's my tail and I give it a little lick when I catch it. And it makes my grumpy mum smile. Purrs Josie
